Microsoft Office 2013: 10 Best Features
July 18, 2012 11:06 AM Go inside Office 2013, Microsoft's ambitious suite for both desktop and mobile devices.
Touch And Stylus
Office 2013 ventures beyond the mouse and keyboard to embrace touch and pen input. While multi-touch laptops aren't--and probably won't be--a mainstream choice for business and home users anytime soon, touch is an essential component of smartphones and tablets, obviously. The pen may be making a comeback too, judging by the popularity of Samsung's stylus-equipped Galaxy Note.
What kind of touch features does Office 2013 have? The same ones you've grown accustomed to using on your phone and tablet: Swipe a finger across the screen to turn a page; pinch and zoom to read documents; and write with a finger or stylus. And when you write an email by hand, Office 2013 automatically converts it to text.
